What is Mind?
#. What is called "mind" is a wondrous power residing in the Self. It causes all thoughts to arise. Apart from these thoughts, there is no such thing as mind. Therefore thought is the nature of mind. Apart from thoughts, there is no independent entity called the world. In deep sleep there are no thoughts, and there is no world. In the states of waking and dream, there are thoughts, and there is a world also. Just as the spider emits the thread of the web out of itself and again withdraws it into itself, likewise the mind projects the world out of itself and again resolves it into itself.
